Allotments are valuable green spaces and community assets that can help improve people's quality of life by promoting healthy food, exercise and community interaction.
The Council recognises the unique role of allotments as places which bring all sections of the community together.
They provide opportunities for people to grow their own produce and to meet new friends.
Public interest in allotments has grown in a recent revival and this has created a greater demand for allotment plots in St Albans.
St Albans Allotment Strategy 2014-2019
St Albans City & District Council has recently written an Allotment Strategy. The strategy seeks to optimise the use of allotments sites for existing and future plot holders. It puts in place a framework for the next 5 years to develop and manage allotments in partnership with users and we very much welcome any comments and suggestions you may have.
